I hope things are going well for everyone. While I am not posting as often as I have in the past, I am still passionate about helping those with OCD, as well as raising awareness of the disorder and its proper treatment. With that in mind, I’d like to share a few pieces of news with you.

First, researchers at Case Western Reserve University are studying the effects of COVID-19 on children with OCD. They are looking for participants for their study and their contact information is listed below if you are interested. Here is what they have to say:

Parenting and supporting a child living with OCD can be difficult. If you can relate to this, consider sharing your #COVID19 experience in this research study: https://bit.ly/351mZCw. #OCD #parenting #quarantine

In other news, you might want to check out this company called You Are Enough. It was started by Natalie De Vincenzi, who sadly had a friend take his life. Natalie says:

You Are Enough Co. sells apparel & other products all dedicated around phrases that share with the world that we are all enough. 100% of the proceeds will be put towards mental health awareness & research. 

It is certainly a worthy cause and I’m happy to try to help spread the word for Natalie.

Lastly, I am honored that my blog has been chosen by Firstaidpro of Australia as one of the top mental health blogs to follow in 2021. You can see the listing of recommended blogs as well as learn more about Firstaidpro here.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable rest of the summer!

    Any information on how the covid vaccine affects adults with ocd? Universities are now mandating it and even if they grant an exemption, a weekly pcr test is required! any help is appreciated!

    • Hi Diana, I don’t know of any research or studies done that have examined the vaccine effects on adults with OCD. I personally know quite a few people with OCD who have gotten the vaccine and it has given them more peace of mind knowing they have taken an important step in protecting themselves and those around them from COVID-19. I wish you all the best moving forward.

      I haven’t seen any studies on it, but my son and I both are diagnosed with OCD and we got our vaccines. I was very nervous as I don’t like to take any type of medications, not even basic pain relievers. But, I’m glad I got the vaccine as I now feel a little safer now that I got it! My son did well with it, too. I just wanted to share my experience.
